    Paula, was sweet and friendly. She loved when she saw me take Maggie for walks. She was always ready to start a conversation with me. She always shared with me when she thought something wasn’t right. She was a very independent woman. She will be missed tremendously. Sending prayers, healing and lots of strength to the family.

    To say I am in shock would be a gross understatement. I am just sick over hearing this news, and heartbroken. I am sitting here remembering all the fun times we had together, like Paula hysterically laughing at me singing the soundtrack to Grease at the top of my lungs driving home from the mall. Or the two of us hiding in our apartment when we spotted a fox under my car and were too scared to leave. Or the time some weird guy was bothering Paula in the mall while she watched our bags and I ran into a store, she yelled for me so I came out to see if our ride was there, but instead saw her looking scared. I started screaming at the guy until he ran off, Paula proceeded to sing
    the “Did you ever know that you’re my hero?” part of Wind Beneath my Wings to me, for at least a week after…I miss the board games Paula, Mary, Pam and I would play after going bowling or playing mini golf. Or when I had to keep Paula from killing Mary in Bermuda when she had us walking around for hours looking pottery. To quote Paula, “We aren’t in F***ing Mexico!” It’s been so long since I had seen or spoken to Paula, something that I very much regret, I am just so sad that I will never get the chance now. My heart goes out to her entire family, I know how much you all meant to each other. You are all in thoughts and prayers.
